A roundtable on sanctions implementation sheds light on the challenges that the public and private sectors are facing in the Netherlands.


In late March 2024, the Centre for Finance and Security (CFS) at RUSI, with the support of the Clingendael Institute, hosted a roundtable in The Hague. Held under the Chatham House Rule, the roundtable, along with a series of one-on-one meetings, discussed the state of sanctions implementation and enforcement in the Netherlands. The gatherings included representatives from national authorities with sanctions-related competences, as well as sanctions and compliance experts from financial institutions, the Dutch Banking Association and other advisers. These included, among others, the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy, Ministry of Finance, Financial Intelligence Unit–the Netherlands, the Ministry of Justice and Security, Customs, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and other relevant agencies. This event was part of the in-country engagements conducted by the CFS-led European Sanctions and the Illicit Finance Monitoring and Analysis Network (SIFMANet), supported by the National Endowment for Democracy.
